Christmas Corner

The Christmas spirit - love - changes hearts and lives.
- Pat Boone



Remember: this December, that love weighs more than gold!
- Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon



What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
- Agnes M. Pahro



Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.
- Lenora Mattingly Weber
